Delicious Inc. ‘Eau De Chanté’
The closing of the Garden at 2am, when Jackmaster steps up to take charge of the Terrace, is a tumultuous piece of programming. The Glaswegian party-starter is one of the biggest DJs on the island these days, and his popularity shows in the vast crowds that desert the Garden and make their way inside. The atmosphere in the room hits a peak, and the Numbers boss thrives in the environment, drawing for edits of recognisable classics such as ‘Good Life’ that have been given a big ‘beefa makeover with bolstered percussive hits and big, crunchy bass layers.
It’s a triumphant performance, accentuated by every figure in the booth ecstatically hugging him from over the shoulders and his best mate Jasper James losing his mind beside his compatriot with extroverted support. It's not Jack’s fault, but the busyness does detract from the set at points, with focus forcibly shifted away from the music and towards trying to stay vertical in the midst of crowd crushes.
